Ever wished you could pick up a passenger during your morning commute? What about on the way to the store, or home from a night of driving? We're thrilled to have a solution: destination mode.

If you're a driver, you can tap the arrow in the top right corner and select 'Add destination filter.' You'll be prompted to enter your destination: home, work, the post office, or your favorite coffee shop. The possibilities are up to you!
When the destination mode is activated, you'll only receive requests from passengers along your route, going your direction. If you don't receive a request within 15 minutes, you'll be signed out of destination and driver mode so you can get on your way.
Destination mode can be activated in all regions where Lyft is available and will pair you with passengers requesting original Lyft or Lyft Line. Ride requests look like the same: destination mode simply filters out Lyft requests that aren't going your way.
Here's what it looks like in the app:
You can complete six destination sessions a day (a session is equal to at least one completed ride on the way to a set destination). When you remove, change, or reach your destination, we'll check to see if you've completed any rides. If you've dropped off any passenger(s), that counts as one session.
Days end at midnight your local time, when you'll be able to set your destination once again.
Your acceptance rate won't be affected while in destination mode because requests will only be from passengers along or very close to your route.
Time spent in destination mode doesn't count as time in driver mode. While in destination mode, time spent driving doesn't go toward Average Hourly Guarantees. However, rides given in destination mode do count toward Power Driver Bonus and Power Zones.
Flexibility is key, so you can change your mind at any time. Tap the 'X' next to the destination address, and you'll be all set to receive regular ride requests.
